Texas here I come

for just the second time. On a bit of a strange trip. Organised rather at the last minute.

I had an email a few weeks back asking if I wanted to talk at the MBAA District Texas Spring Conference in San Antonio. Of course I'd like to. It's just a case of the money. Something that's surely overcomeable.

And so it turned out to be. With a little imagination, I could find something else to do in Texas. Namely, drop by Jester King in Austin. It's not that far from San Antonio. I wouldn't want to miss out on a chance to see my mate Jeff Stuffings again.

This really wasn't something that I had pencilled into my 2019 travelling schedule. Which is starting to look rather full. I've two more US trips planned - Asheville in May and Providence in June.

This is my Texas schedule:

Tuesday 26th March to Thursday 28th March Austin
Friday 29th March to Sunday 31st March San Antonio

Will you be speaking anywhere in San Antonio besides the MBAA thing? It sounds like a members-only event. I live in San Antonio and would love to have a chance to meet you at one of our local breweries and enjoy a beverage or two.

I'll be speaking at Jester King in Austin, too. But free for a beer or two in San Antonio.

Rats, I am going to be in Austin myself in a couple of weeks.

Are you speaking at the National Homebrewers' Conference in Providence in June or just attending? So good to have you back in New England!

I'll be speaking at the NHC.

I'll be in Raleigh NC end of May/beginning of June, if that's any help.

Any word on when the Jester King event will take place? Or any other events near Austin featuring your beery wisdom?

Eric James,

the Jester King event is Thursday 28th November. I won't be in town long enough to do any other events.
